3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Special Brews in Lynwood, WA. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy tan head. Mild bourbon and a little chocolate aroma through a lot of head. Med body or so. Flavor is bourbon, wood, chocolate. Decent drink. Glad I didn’t keep it til summer. Finishes somewhat astringent with chocolate here and there. Bourbon too.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out loads of whiskey barrels upfront, along with light caramel, and alcohol. Flavour is heavy on the whiskey as well, with huge boozy alcoholic woody notes, and more whiskey. Quite overwhelming, though somehow still drinkable, albeit slowly. Dominated by the whiskey - decent.

A very well balanced ale. Rich and luxurious, equal parts dark and chocolatey, roasted, and vanilla Oaked goodness. Hops still shine through the barrels a bit. An excellent brew."

Draft at Beveridge Place Pub. Yeah, this beer is a total mess. I really want to root for the local, too. Murky brown with a thick, creamy, webby tan head. Big sour brune ale nose: tart and puckery, along with some earthy wet leaves. Creamy medium body. Grain husk, earth, wet leaves, saurkraut, and a few other things that don’t belong make up the mid-palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep dark ruby, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft bourbon nose, a little apple or pear skin.   Faint fruity hop aspect too.   Pale bourbon like notes on the tongue.   Not as big as I was hoping for a 9% Winter Ale.   Really needs to be maltier, chewier, and doesn’t feel like 9% whatsoever.   No warming, no heat.   Malty, slightly mealy finish, with a grainy background.   Hops are... light.   I am not sure what to make of this.   Bourbon isnt strong enough, base isnt malty or chewy enough, grainy malt bill, without much hop presense.   Not a real fan...
